The annual race that attracts approximately 4,000 runners each year will again be donating a portion of its proceeds to help accelerate the creation of the Saratoga Greenbelt Trail! Implementing what may become a model for others, the race organizers will donate one dollar from every entry to the trail effort. Their generous support reminds one of the famous line, ‘the path is made by walking,’ but in this case perhaps it is the path being made by running!
The race will begin at 9AM on July 4 at the Saratoga Springs City Center, with a course that heads down Broadway, out through the historic residential district and then back to the City Center. Prizes will be awarded to top finishers, as well as for the popular “Run Your Colors” competition. More information about the race can be found at their web site, or go directly to register online. Please also consider volunteering at the race to thank them for their support of the trail effort.
